The first encouraging sex positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault heterosexual bisexual lesbian coupled and single who want to reclaim their sex lives While most books on the topic broach sexuality only to reas. Here is the review that I wrote for the Feminist Review blog I ve wanted to read this book since it was first published in 1999 as The Survivor s Guide to Sex How to Have an Empowered Sex Life After Child Sexual Abuse so I was pleased to review this updated second editionI had forgotten that the focus is on survivors of childhood sexual abuse and the new subtitle obscures that detail However I think this book could be helpful for any woman recovering from any sexual abuse no matter what her age when the assault happenedThe healing offered in this guide is based on somatics a new paradigm which views the mind body and spirit as one integrated whole or one interconnected biological system while treating the body as an essential place of change learning and transformation Somatic practices aim to help survivors learn new ways to address their need for safety and connection while supporting the mindbody in learning new ways of being and acting Information presented is comprehensive with chapters devoted to desire and pleasure dissociation sexual response and anatomy masturbation and self healing consent and boundaries penetration oral sex embracing triggers sex toys intimacy SM spiritual sexuality and the emotions of healing There is even a chapter for partners of survivors of sexual abuse The bibliography and resource list includes details for learning about childhood sexual abuse various aspects of trauma somatic healing and sex education as well as advice on acuiring sex positive materials Emphasizing many points made by the author are uotes from real women recovering from child sexual abuse These uotes give true to life examples of the ideas the author is asserting and allow the book to include many voices I appreciated being able to witness the experiences of a variety of womenAt the end of each chapter are two to six sex guide exercises which reinforce the ideas and techniues for healing presented in the preceding pages The reader is encouraged to reflect on or write down answers to these uestions or to have conversations about them with a support person These assignments give the reader concrete ways to work towards healingI recommend this book to every woman on the road to recovery from sexual abuse especially if that abuse happened to her when she was a girl I also recommend it to partners and counselorstherapists of women recovering from sexual trauma as well as anyone interested in healthy empowered sexuality
